SEAD Network for Sciences, Engineering, Arts and Design announces a
call for White Papers on issues facing the international community
seeking to enhance transdisciplinary collaboration
We are seeking to survey concerns, roadblocks and opportunities, and
solicit proposed actions for enhancing collaboration between sciences
and engineering with practitioners in arts and design. These position
papers will be submitted as part of a report to NSF and the community
from the SEAD network in the summer of 2013. With grateful
appreciation for US funding, we recognize that activity connecting the
sciences, engineering, to arts and design is international and,
furthermore, that global involvements are essential in today's
economy. Therefore we are interested both in what US collaborators can
learn from experiences in other countries, and vice versa, institution
or region specific issues, and also in how to foster collaborations
that bridge beyond regions to nations. Cultural cross-fertilization
via the SEAD network – whether from disciplinary, organizational or
ethnic perspectives – is a vital component of our purpose and goals.
Chair, Roger Malina, Leonardo/ISAST Chair Emeritus, Leonardo Governing

SEAD Working Group on White Papers
The SEAD Working Group on White Papers is assembled in response to the
following two objectives from US NSF NEA workshops: a) The NSF NSEAD
workshop at MICA suggested the development of White Papers for
research and advocacy leading to a common platform (Beyond
Productivity 2 report as a follow on to Beyond Productivity, the
report issued by the US National Research Council and directed by
William Mitchell); present at conferences 2012-13.
For further information or questions about White Papers in text or
video format, contact Carol Strohecker
Additional Guidelines for White Papers are available at
We welcome innovative ways of using online media to articulate the
arguments of the White Papers. If you wish to explore experimental
publishing approaches, contact Roger Malina <email@example.com>.
